Highlights included: Darren Parchman, a 5'7" 144 lb. junior, had a great night against Mater Dei in a 21-19 victory. He followed up a fist quarter 71 yard run with a 9 yd TD run on the next play. He followed up the Wildcats' first score with a 91 yard kickoff return for a touchdown and then proceeded to pick off a pair of Mater Dei passes on defense. In the same game, QB Brock Kell had his best performance of the year going 9 for 17 with 156 yards and a 39 yard TD strike to Andrew Powers. Powers also caught the ensuing 2 pt. conversion.
The season was marked with heartbreaking losses. In the opener, on the strength of a strong rushing performance by Mike Campbell in which he ran 11 times for 78 yards and some flashy defense by Demetrius Baker, who blocked a punt and recovered a fumble during the game, the Huskies led 12-7 with 0:49 seconds to play. Bosse had the ball on their own 12 yard line and completed a 'Hail Mary' pass on the last play of the game to score an impossible 39 yard touchdown and steal the victory 13-12.
Versus rival Central, the score was tied at 6 at the end of regulation to force overtime. On the opening OT possession, facing fourth and goal from the ten yard line, Brock Kell broke around the end and scored a TD. Chris Berry kicked the extra point and the Huskies led 13-6. On Central's possession, three consecutive defensive stops had left the Bears facing 4th and 20 yards to the goal line. They converted and opted to go for a two point conversion and the win. The ensuing pass handed the Huskies an overtime defeat.
The following week against Memorial, the Huskies trailed by eight with barely three minutes to play. QB Kell led a drive downfield that reached a critical point when facing 4th and 9 on the Tiger 13 yard line. Kell hit Mike Campbell with a pass in the flat and the running back dove through defenders to pick up the first down with a 10 yard gain. With scant seconds remaining, Kell found TE Alan Besing in the end zone to pull the Huskies within two points. Memorial managed to bat down a pass in the end zone to preserve their win on the game's next to last play.
Two weeks later, state-ranked opponent Heritage Hills came to town expecting to blow out the hard luck Huskies. Dean Beck led a determined North defense with 7 solo tackles and an amazing 15 assists in the game. The Huskies had changed QB's in the first quarter and sophomore Chris Berry displayed some of the prowess that North would come to expect from him in coming years. He completed 9 of 13 passes for 151 yards including a 30 yard pass to Brock Kell. Kell followed the reception with a 34 yard run for a TD and pulled the Huskies within 13-6 midway through the 4th quarter. Heritage Hills however proved to be too powerful down the stretch and held possession of the ball for the remainder of the game, finally scoring in the waning seconds after an eight minute drive.
DEFENSE--2 pts each for solo, cause or recover fumble, sack, int, blk kick; 1 pt each for assist and tackle for loss
